I don't think that was written by a fourteen year old. =\

It's possible, perhaps even probable. However, I have seen other 14-year olds who have displayed a writing ability and level of maturity that would have put to shame people twice their age, so I'm totally discounting it.

In any case, Jack Thompson got owned. On the other hand, that's not really all that unusual, since it doesn't take rocket science to own Jack Thompson in a conversation like this, considering that he almost always immediately stoops to throwing insults and threatening legal action rather than actually debating anything.

The sad thing is that one reason he may do this is because he probably gets so many "STFU u fAG!!!!1!!~!@@!2`" emails that he has just taken to dismissing emails from gamers out of hand, no matter how well written and serious they might be. I'm certainly not defending Jack Thompson here in any way, since the guy is an honest to goodness asstard, but he probably gets a lot of stuff from that contingent of 11-year olds that Brooks Brown criticized in his blog on 1up (and who make it incredibly hard to fathom that someone only a few years older could be even remotely well-spoken). Still, I have no sympathy for Thompson, since that's what he gets for openly posting his email address on his website.

Actually, it looks like he has updated his website since I last checked it, because he no longer has his email address displayed. Maybe he got a clue, at least in that instance.

But... as for the rest of his website, he's still as full of himself as ever, if not moreso.

At one point he says:

"Jack Thompson doesn't want your money. He isn't asking you to be a client. What he wants is for you to get up out of your chair because you're as mad as Hell about the video game industry's assault on our children and you're not going to take it anymore!

These people will not stop. They mentally molest minors for money, which is the root of all sorts of evil."

(Let me pause for a moment and admire that bit of alliteration in that last sentence there. Okay, I'm done.)

Yet on the very same page, prior to this, he's promoting his book:

"Jack has a Tyndale House book, Out of Harm's Way, arriving in November 2005. You can order it now at www.amazon.com and www.barnesandnoble.com."

*laughs out loud*
